Capital Campaign – April 2022 Update

Status: Architectural drawings have been provided to 5 potential contractors who have expressed interest in working on the project. Due date for bids was April 4.

We have reached out to Hopewell Township to see if a full review will be required and are awaiting a response.

History of the Capital Campaign as well as latest plans and schematics are posted on the church website and can be viewed here. The webpage is a work in progress but should give everyone a consistent source for up-to-date information on the project as we move forward.

Timeline: We anticipate being able to select a contractor by mid-late April. Permitting should be completed by end of May (or sooner if full review is not required), and ground-breaking likely in June 2022. The sanctuary will be accessible throughout construction.

Financials (not yet updated for April): Funds raised so far include $1,094,515 in Capital Campaign pledges. Approximately 85% of that has been collected so far. Expenses have totaled $283,277 on parking, permits, fees, and architectural/engineering services. Pledge collections are mostly tracking according to commitments – THANK YOU!! PLEASE, if you have not yet had a chance to contribute, consider making a capital campaign contribution. Once a contractor is selected, we will schedule Q&A sessions for those who may want more information before committing to this critical effort for UUCWC.
